« Part 2: Under construction finally! Part 3 of Building a porch. series Part 4: Balusters for railing! »

I’m kind of working backward, because you usually put the skirting on last,

but I didn’t have the 2’ X 6” material for the railing balusters yet, so that’s why I went this route.

I didn’t want to rely on the bolts alone to hold up the deck,

so I rabbeted a 4” x 4” to rap around the metal post.

Nice job Dick. This is a great looking porch. I like the design you chose for the skirting.

It looks like your grandson has an eye for art. Well done.
